General Board / Re: Database for default startup project is down
« on: December 12, 2017, 08:02:16 pm »
When a new key is created in the registry, a default value name/data is added to it automatically which is usually unused.
...worked for me. How would that be?
Some[thing | one] has fixed the actual problem for you elsewhere.
I wish!
As you couldn't even open an .eap locally by double clicking, your problem was not solely because of the database server being down. It could be your network that had issues and EA couldn't access the license details from the key store.
Fixed node license in my case due to laptop
OTOH, Sparx has previously confirmed an issue where if the default project is not accessible, EA cannot be launched. However, in this case EA could be launched by double clicking on an .eap
That's what I was doing - and it wouldn't open.
But the main thing is - thank you for your help with the right key.
In any case I've disabled default project. I'm not that lazy.

Thank you VKN for the registry key correction.
Succinct and helpful. Makes more sense too.
Curiously though, the key I altered worked for me. How would that be?
All the best

Thanks Qwerty - so it's in the registry under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sparx Systems\EA400\EA\Recent File List,
and is the 'default value' key

General Board / Database for default startup project is down
« on: December 10, 2017, 09:06:57 pm »

Because the SQL database server that hosts the default startup project is down, EA can not open the default project and will not even start. I can't even work on a local model by double-clicking it. The process is stuck.


Does anybody know where the configuration file is to change the default start-up project?


Thanks in advance

Suggestions and Requests / Re: RAML

Did anyone get any clarity on whether there is a Sparx or third-party RAML plug-in?
Cheers

Is it possible to use the in-built report generator to report on a selection of classes dotted around my model, so that their operations' signatures are tabulated like so:

Class NameOperationNameParam Name and TypeReturn Type
Class 1OperationX(Rows of parameters)integer

Or similar

With the reassurance given ... we're looking for someone with tool customisation abilities: scripting, meta-modelling and so forth. Ideally TOGAF.

I won't post the message until I know it is OK to do so. Don't want to misuse the forum.

General Board / Re: Untapped Feature: "Element Decisions"
« on: August 15, 2017, 11:14:11 pm »
Many thanks everyone
The key thing here for me is that the DMN is for modelling repeated decision rules (what we call business rules in our organisation). Can be useful and I'd be keen to see any examples anyone has, especially visualisation of the rules on diagrams.
This is as opposed to recording decisions made during architectural analysis and decision, that are more often ad-hoc. Anybody got any prior art approaches on that?

General Board / Untapped Feature: "Element Decisions"
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:32:03 pm »
Hi All
Sparx 13 has a feature under Design->Element->Decisions that brings up a Decision Table window in the diagram tab, focussed around the current element.
It has a single Scenario tab with a top pane to add a number of unique scenarios / conditions / not sure?
The tab also has a bottom pane to add a number of conclusions.
F1 / context sensitive help no longer works since I installed the local help files (just take me to the help front page i.e. has lost context sensitivity).
So I'm at a loss about the value and use of this. Anyone have any experience of it and can say what it is good for

Hi Graham

I think the most that the Time Aware Modelling feature set itself offers in this regard is the ability to filter a diagram based on version number. So it is down to ensuring you've thought ahead about the diagrams you will use in your original and cloned structure.

Then there's the traceability view and the gap analysis tools that already exist. You can get some mileage using these with the way this feature is implemented, but you have to dig.

Did you go on to use Time Aware Modelling? How did you get on?

General Board / Re: Time Aware Modelling - Some questions
« on: April 28, 2017, 01:26:28 am »
Hi Paolo

Lots of views on this post, but where are the replies?
  • Version numbers need not be numerical.
  • The clone of diagrams does consist of pointers to original elements, but then you can optionally clone those elements in-situ from the diagram, when you are intending to change them from the prior version.
Have you gone on to use this approach? I'd be interested in your experiences.

Consider a cloned V1.1 diagram with a V1 element 'X' that relations to a V1 element 'Y', with a V1(X-Y) relationship.
I don't like the fact that when you clone V1-X, it creates a V1.1(X)-V1(Y) relationship, nor do I like the V1.1(X)-V1(X) relationship.

To Illustrate why I don't like it, consider what happens to a document of your V1 AS-IS that reports on relationships. All of a sudden it is polluted with V1.1 etc version object ends. And also bear in mind it will likely report on the V1.1 'X' through the trace relationship.

It's an interesting implementation but there's another way to skin the cat that doesn't have these issues. I'm taking one idea to the London User Conference on 18 May, where we can workshop the subject and see what other ideas people have. I pledge to come back to the forum with a summary of the discussion.

Namaste,

Matt

Yep - it's working!
